"TNNA" Sweater

Don't mind me, just hanging out in my magical fairy fort, wearing the sweater I was supposed to finish in time to wear to TNNA in June but only just bound off the other day (that's, um, why TNNA is in quotes in the title.)

Half of the back!


I just wanted something easy and comfy to protect me from the convention center's air conditioning. But it was only about half done when it came time to head to Columbus, and though I worked on it a lot there, it's been sitting on the back burner since. The yarn is Madelinetosh Tosh Merino Worsted in Kale, which is very easily my favorite Madtosh colorway ever. I have about three whole skeins leftover, too, which is exciting.

It's really simple- a basic raglan, no body shaping, no sleeve shaping, wide neck, stockinette with some reverse stockinette on the edges. It was originally supposed to be worn inside out but when I started alternating skeins (to avoid getting a sharp line when I switched them) I forgot to carry the yarn up the correct side so, um, oops. No biggie, except the reverse stockinette along the vertical opening looks a little silly on this side, but would've been a cool i-cord-esque detail if it was inside out. No buttons or other closures, because I was lazy and didn't want to have to count more than absolutely necessary ;-) It was a delightfully mindless project to have with me at the show, in the end, and now it will be a delightfully just-north-of-schluppy sweater to bum around in all Christmas. Yay!

    1. I'd squish his little head in no time. I need to find a hat to put him on, where he'll be nice and safe.

    1. Naw, this one was just a practice run. I might work up something similar though, and iron out some of it's kinks. Thank you :-)
